The much-hyped Thompson Miami Beach, from A-list designer Martin Brudnizki, is a unique combination of Art Deco skyscraper and 1950s glass-and-steel tower. The 380-room hotel is an avant-garde sanctuary with a soft, sandy beach in its backyard and Seagrape, a “Floridian brasserie” by celebrity chef Michelle Bernstein. Small plates and main dishes at the restaurant include items such as crispy veal sweetbreads with smoky stewed cranberries, and whole Florida snapper with recado verde and potato puree. Artistic yet minimalist guestrooms and suites offer pillowtop beds on low-rise wooden platforms, pops of seafoam-green and tangerine, gourmet minibars, balconies with views of the Atlantic, and luxurious baths with rain showers and oversize robes. Lounges serve sophisticated cocktails, including the 1930s House, a throwback to a Prohibition-era speakeasy. Strut your way around the hotel’s two sexy pools, where DJs or live musical acts provide the entertainment and set the scene. Guests can also unwind in the spa (there are six outdoor cabanas) or with a treatment in the 1950s-style salon from the renowned Miami-based Junior & Hatter.
In the Area
Entertainment options in the immediate area are limited, but a number of casual eateries can be found just across the bridge, as well as Café Avanti, an Italian restaurant and wine bar. For a sizzling night out, the LIV nightclub is just a few blocks to the north, or you can hop in a cab and go to South Beach’s Story nightclub for some of the hottest celebrity performers. Directly across Biscayne Bay is the Wynwood Arts District, a unique Miami neighborhood overflowing with stunning galleries. About a mile to the south, visitors will find the Bass Museum of Art, and a few blocks past that is the New World Symphony, located at the end of the Lincoln Road Mall shopping center.
How to Get There
Great service great people I had a wonderful time at the beach with the beach attendant samuel athelus and server Aaron wonderful conversationalists and excellent people got to sit in the front of the beach on a beach chair
Florian was a great beach attendant, very helpful. Pleasure to deal with. Was able to answer all my questions and gave me a great service. He went up and beyond to help with with towels and getting us a nice seat on the beach.
Kind of tucked a bit away from the Soho house, this hotel has a good deal of charm. From the warm greeting by the Front Desk staff to the housekeepers, Service to customers comes first. Small guest rooms. Nice bathrooms, but no tubs. Soft sheets, comfy beds and great balcony room with view of the ocean and grounds. Also has spa, restaurant and bar. 2 towels and beach chairs occluded. Great location. Robes, slippers and safe. Has it all and on Collins Avenue.
The Confidante is a mid range hotel. The staff is wonderful, they were very kind and accommodating. The pool area is nice and the beach is right there. This is my first time here. South Beach is just a trolley ride away. The only negative that I can say is that there isn’t a coffee maker in the room. I travel for a living and that is an important thing for me. Everything else was wonderful.. I did not eat in the hotel restaurant so I am not sure about that.
My girls took me for my birthday and we are having a great time at The Confidente! Lunch at Bird & Bone yum, the biscuits not to be missed! Shahudeen and Samuel set us up on the beach and took excellent care of us!. Will definitely come back! 🏖🍷
